chico Lyr Add: White House Chair (Foster, 1856) (5) Lyr Add: White House Chair (Foster, 1856) 15 Jan 06



(arpeggios on chorus chord progression) (C7 F Bb F C7. . .)

    F       C7         F    Bb
Let all our hearts for union be,
C7                         F
For the North and South are one;
         F       C7    F7    Bb
They've worked together manfully,
       F                C7         F
And together they will still work on.

      C                F
Then come ye men from ev'ry state,
      Bb      F/C       C7
Our creed is broad and fair;
    F    /A /C Bb    C7
Buchanan is our candidate,
          F             C7          F
And we'll put him in the White House Chair.

We'll have no dark designing band
To rule with secret sway;
We'll give to all a helping hand,
And be open as the light of day.

We'll not outlaw the land that holds
The bones of Washington;
Where Jackson fought and Marion bled,
And the battles of the brave were won.

[OMITA]
Come all ye men of every state,
Our creed is broad and fair;
Buchanan is our candidate,
And we'll put him in the White House Chair.


[Words and Music by Stephen Collins Foster, 1826-1864]
